Ask an 8-year-old what the best part of Kids Adventure Camp is and you’ll get a definite—and honest—answer. Speed tubing, lunch and swimming (in that order). Ask his fellow campers that same question? Expect to hear speed tubing, a lot. And receive similar replies: (a) high energy, high speed and/or soaking wet activity, (b) lunch, (c) variation on a. After all, there are three things sure to top any kid’s wish list—summer vacation, lunch, and lots of fun stuff to do!
